“Just a note of thanks for my experiences and relationships made while working with CHAP Home Helper clients.
I still fondly remember my client who recently passed and still remain in touch with her daughter.
A previous client currently in a nursing home I have a chance to see while working with my existing clients.
My clients are a blessing. I really enjoy my time with them and seeing other residents if even to just smile and say Hi!
I look forward to what the future holds and the quality care and time we can give back to these people.”

“We have recently been working with CHAP to assist with my in-laws. I just received an email this morning (to all the family) from my sister in-law telling everyone what an awesome job CHAP is doing. We are completely blown away at the initiative and compassion shown by the worker (Shirley) that is coming to assist my in-laws. This lady is remarkable to say the least.
CHAP and Shirley in particular, are lifesavers. My wife and I and one sister in-law, are the only family in town and we were on the verge of severe burn out trying to care for my in-laws. Since CHAP has come on board, that has been avoided and we actually feel like we are getting some semblance of our lives back. Just wanted to let you know how completely impressed we are”. ~ Ron

For Immediate Release
Developmental Services Committee Seeks Representatives
The Chatham-Kent Developmental Services Planning Committee, a group consisting of local service providers, self-advocates, families and community members, is looking to broaden its representation. The group is seeking an adult who receives support and a parent or family member representative to join to the group.
“Over many years agencies in Chatham-Kent that provide support to individuals with an intellectual disability have regularly met to act as a service coordination network, to review and comment on government initiatives and to advocate for improved levels of service and outcomes for individuals and families,” said David Katzman, Committee Chair and Executive Director at Community Living Wallaceburg. “Self-advocates and families add significant value to the committee and their insights are vital to carrying out the group’s mandate.”
The Committee meets once a month in Chatham on the third Wednesday, and meetings typically run between 10:30 a.m. and noon. The term of office is for two years. The Terms of Reference for the Committee can be found at www.getintocommunityliving.com. An orientation to the work of the Committee will be provided.
Any person who meets the basic criteria of being an adult in receipt of support, a parent, family member or guardian of an adult with an intellectual disability, and wishes to learn more about the opportunity is encouraged to write a brief letter highlighting their background and desire to support the committee’s efforts. All correspondence should be addressed to CKDSPC, c/o 1100 Dufferin Avenue, Wallaceburg, ON N8A 2W1.
